BEVERLY, Mass. – Acculab Measurement Standards Laboratory has leased 6,100 square feet at 48 Dunham Ridge, a Cummings Properties-managed business and technology center in Beverly, MA.
The instrument calibration company will relocate in April from Cherry Hill Drive in Danvers to its new custom-built space.
Founded in 1986, Acculab provides calibration, instrument repair, and compliance metrology services for test equipment used in life sciences and medical manufacturing.
“We run a high-tech operation whose keystones are precision and reliability,” said Acculab president and CEO Jim Jezowski. “Dunham Ridge offers the convenience of a ground-floor suite and a highway-adjacent location, which will help us eliminate unnecessary variables.”
Cummings Properties vice president Steve Drohosky and CBRE executive vice president Mike Ripp worked with Cushman & Wakefield associate Shayne O’Neil on the transaction.
“Dunham Ridge has really established itself as a haven for technology and life sciences firms,” said Cummings Properties business development officer Michelle Paul, who met with Jezowski to conduct the initial showing. “Many of our recent arrivals were drawn to the campus by the opportunity to collocate with other big names in their industries. We are currently working with others who are attracted to the significant infrastructure and opportunities here.”
Among the campus’ current occupants are Microline Surgical, New England Biolabs, spmd, System 7 Wolfers, and Harmonic Drive.
According to Paul, Cummings’ in-house design and construction teams recently completed a custom buildout of the space, which includes HVAC service to accommodate tight environmental control and interior and exterior upgrades to allow for direct shipping and receiving access.
Dunham Ridge is a 54-acre business and technology campus currently under development. Next to North Shore Music Theatre, it is accessible via Exit 19 on Route 128.
When Cummings Properties acquired the site in late 2011, it had just one building and one 10,000-square-foot occupant. Since then, Cummings has built an expansive campus with 500,000 leasable square feet as well as multi-level covered and surface parking. More information is available at www.dunhamridge.com.
